you climbed up the ladder of my ribcage
to sit at the base of my throat
until i was choking,
fingers trembling like old razor blades
fragile and thin and worn.
you carved out my insides
until there was nothing left.
until i was hollow.

then, you smiled.
Anxiety.

I have not been fairing well, recently.

Eerie ending. I like it!
The title suprisingly fits, like the top rung of your ribcage's ladder where he sat, or the blades of his razor he used...like there's really just no single word to describe these dark feelings. </3

Thank you! I'm so glad.

And yeah, honestly, I kind of didn't want too much of a title, because titles usually influence how I see a poem, so I just wanted strictly words. You know?

But, yeah. I'm glad you could get the image.

Thank you c':

Ooh, I like that thinking, it's pretty thoughtful of you. Titles are really tricky things like that sometimes...like you just want to judge the poem by its title sometimes, well, when you first see it. Yeah.

Me too!
You're welcome! Have a lovely day. C:

:huggle: Hang in there, my friend. <3

 

And like ~TheGuyWhoCantDraw said, I'm also tiring of people like the ones you so eloquently described in this magnificent piece.

(This piece is just so excellent. :))

S'a little tough, sometimes, it seems.

Thank you, though. It means a lot. (:

(And thank you kindly! I really appreciate it.)
